REGISTER HERE

CEs: 3 for SW, C, MFT

Eating disorders are one of the most compelling and life-threatening of mental health disorders and are commonly referred out to specialists, with few outpatient specialists in Northeast Ohio. This program seeks to provide clinicians with enhanced application of evidence-based treatments for adolescents with eating disorders, including Family-Based Treatment (FBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In this training, clinicians will review eating disorder diagnoses and these two evidenced-based treatments. Emphasis will be placed on case exploration featuring different diagnoses, typical and atypical presentations, various cultural factors and levels of recovery. Clinicians will engage in small group discussions about difficult cases with full question-and-answer session.


SoC Best Practices | Youth Suicidality: Safety Planning & Lethal Means Counseling
Presented by Steph Freeman, LPCC-S

June 21, 2024
9:00 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
REGISTER HERE

This virtual workshop will explore current issues and concerns around youth and young adult suicidality. We will identify critical elements in suicide safety planning and examine the importance of counseling on access to lethal means. Safety plans are designed to support suicide prevention by providing action steps an individual can take when feeling suicidal. Intentionally reducing access to lethal means can contribute to whether a person at risk for suicide lives or dies. We will identify practical skills and strategies that can immediately be implemented with current clients.

3 CEs for SW, C, Psych, RN/LPN, MFT


SoC Best Practices | Engaging Families Impacted by SUD
Presented by Carly Mesnick 

Trauma Informed family engagement is a foundational principle in the success of families that experience substance use disorder. This training will highlight what trauma informed family engagement is and place an emphasis on its importance of use with SUD families in the health and human service field. Evidence shows that trauma informed family engagement strategies are an effective tool in increasing the engagement of families struggling with substance use disorder and through examining the six principles of trauma informed care, attendees of the training will be able to gain strategies to engage families affected by substance use disorders and develop a trauma informed engagement plan to utilize in their family engagement practices.
